At the risk of looking past th first game vs the LIons, which I am not doing, The Eagles got a tough blow yesterday as it appears Stewart Bradley,starting middle linebacker and signal caller, tore his ACL. I personally don't think he was a Pro-Bowl level player but he was their best and a smart player. With the loss of Dawkins and Coach Jim Johnson, their defense may have some significant weaknesses to deal with this season and be very exploitable. I think good teams will be able to run on them and complete short passes pretty well - we'll see.
